Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved – Acts 4:12
In the last two days we have looked at the seriousness of sin and at the urgent need for repentance. Unrepentant sin leads to an everlasting lake of fire.
But where is salvation found? It is not found even in our repentance or good works, because we could never be good enough to please a perfect God. It is not found in sincerity alone, because many religions and philosophies are sincere and yet diametrically opposed to each other. Where can salvation be found?
It is found only in the perfect person and work of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. By his perfect life, selfless and substitutionary death, and powerful resurrection Jesus proved himself to be what he claimed to be during his life — the one, true God. Salvation is found in him alone because he alone is able and willing to save us from our sins.
Have you felt the weight of your sins? Have you been convinced of your inability to find any lasting joy, satisfaction, or forgiveness on your own? Then rush into the arms of the One in whom salvation is found. There is no other name under heaven, whereby we must be saved, than Jesus Christ. But that name is sufficient to wipe away every sin and to save us completely from our guilt and shame.
